Sean Trades Me Three Things For Three Other Things

This trade, like many others recently, happened through the mail.

And while I love expanding bARTer Sauce to new areas of the globe, I do kind of miss the trading in person part of it. Now, in order to spice this up a little bit, I've decided that I'll ask anyone who trades with me through the mail to tell me an extra, bonus, double-good story. Along those lines, I asked Sean to tell me about when he first learned that there was no Santa Claus.

Sean, on Santa (not in a weird way):

Octavian trades me a painting called Transition in exchange for The photo of a Naked Chick by my studio partner Kimberly

Rosalie and Octavian making a bARTer Sauce trade

bARTer Sauce struck it rich at First Thursday.

Rich I tell you. Rich. People kept coming in, reading about The Sauce and then going home to get me trades. Hells yes. This is how it's supposed to be. I suppose it helped that I actually printed out the stories that go with each item and posted them with the display. Without those, it's kind of just a big pile of weird stuff for no real reason. Now it has context and makes some sense. Huzzah!

"Transition" By Octavian Starr

Octavian traded me this painting called "Transition" on First Thursday 12/6.

1/2/08 Update: No story yet. Public humiliation to come in form of unflattering pictures sent out in e-newsletter. Teehee

2/21/08 Update: Still nothing. Have seen Octavian many times since he promised this story. Now he seems excited by the threat of me putting a mustache on him and sending out his picture in my e-newsletter. Jerk. I may never get this story.
